Mocha has established itself as an essential part in many workflows for getting fast and accurate tracking and shape data from challenging footage. This course focuses on a practical breakdown of various techniques for more challenging shots. We start with an examination of the most important tool in mocha – its planar tracker.
Building on this foundation we look at the flexibility of this data with sharp stabilization rotoshape creation and a 3D camera solve. To complete the tasks we will be taking trips into compositing apps to further the shot and demonstrate the wider workflow. All of the classes are based upon mini-projects; exactly the type of work you might be called upon to complete as an artist.
